Following STONEHILL DOWNS and ACROSS THE LONG SEA, acclaimed author Sarah Remy continues her gripping, grimdark “Bone Magic” fantasy series with THE BONE CAVE (ISBN 9780062473745), on-sale from Harper Voyager Impulse on November 22, 2016, in digital-first format.  A paperback edition (ISBN 9780062473752) will be available in late 2016.

Grimdark continues to be a strong subgenre of fantasy, as readers breathlessly anticipate new works by master authors George R.R. Martin, Joe Abercrombie, and Peter V. Brett.  Filled with complex characters and shaded morality, Sarah Remy’s Bone Magic series is a perfect discovery for the legions of readers waiting for the next dark, gritty fix from their favorite authors.  

“This book is nuanced and powerful, perfect for readers who crave shades of gray in their stories, rather than the black-and-white gradients epic fantasy typically offers,” says Harper Voyager editor Priyanka Krishnan.

In this novel, Mal, a powerful mage who functions as the king’s personal forensic scientist and detective, has survived a desperate kidnapping attempt by a foreign potentate—but at what cost? Mal is a broken man, and though his friend and magical protégé, Avani, attempts to serve the king and support Mal in his time of need, she must also grapple with the untold dangers that continue to threaten the land -- and every soul she holds dear in her heart.

About the book: 
Past Stonehill Downs, beyond unforgiving scrubland and perilous mountain peaks, militant tribes gather on white sand . . . 
With the Red Worm plague vanquished, and Malachi and Liam safely returned from Roue, Avani expects life in Wilhaiim to return to normal. But Mal has been changed by his journey across the long sea, and now walks dangerously close to the edge of madness, while the horrors of war in a foreign land have transformed Liam from a naïve lad to a young man seeking his place as sidhe among mortals.

And the plague has left chaos in its wake: Wilhaiim’s priests are rising against King Renault, a serial killer is taking vengeance on His Majesty's unwary subjects, and someone is using forbidden bone magic to kindle the Automata—mechanized monsters born of ancient necromancy.

As Avani works to contain unrest and expose a murderer, she is unaware that a far greater threat is rolling in from the east: a bloodthirsty desert army intent on destruction. 

Magic will be tested and friendship tried as Avani and Mal battle new peril and old temptation in this stunning follow up to Across the Long Sea. 
About the author: 
In 1994 Sarah Remy earned a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing from Pomona College in California. Since then she’s been employed as a receptionist at a high-powered brokerage firm, managed a boutique bookstore, read television scripts for a small production company, and, more recently, worked playground duty at the local elementary school.

When she’s not taking the service industry by storm, she’s writing fantasy and science fiction. Sarah likes her fantasy worlds gritty, her characters diverse and fallible, and she doesn’t believe every protagonist deserves a happy ending.

Before joining the Harper Voyager family, she published with EDGE, Reuts, and Madison Place Press.
Sarah lives in Washington State with plenty of animals and people, both. In her limited spare time she rides horses, rehabs her old home, and supervises a chaotic household. She can talk to you endlessly about Sherlock Holmes, World of Warcraft, and backyard chicken husbandry, and she’s been a member of one of Robin Hobb’s longest-running online fan clubs since 2002.
